Spaghetti con Tonno

Serves 4

When I was still in elementary school, lunch would be served by the school cook . We had risotto and all kinds if pasta long,  short, thin,  thick you name it. My fave was Fridays menu, spaghetti con tonno. My goal was always to be served last because there will be lost of tuna chunks. If I was served in the middle or first I will then get more of the spaghetti. I could make it at home also back then.

In junior high school, I use to baby sit children of my parents friends. Once I baby sit for two boys, they were my favorites. We will watch video together, play on the trampoline together and help mom shop for one week. They don’t like to eat that much but when I make my spaghetties, they couldn’t stop eating and we will just eat until all is finish and scrape for left overs from the pan.  Sometimes I would make it plain without tomato sauce and sometimes is with tomato sauce, the basic recipe is just the same. Here is the recipe, hope you like it too 🙂
